From Issue #99July 2002
I'm currently using;
- Debian 4.0r0 GNU/Linux
- Icarus Verilog version 0.8
The test module didn't work correctly. After I changed following line;
reg clk = 0;
it's finally work.
reg clk = 0;
Icarus is a fantastic tool. It substitutes
for a $100,000 per seat tool from others.
It does not have limits like other demos,
its a full simulator. Supports $dumpfile
so you can generate waveforms. Runs on
Win95 even. Highly reliable.
Just in case you are tempted. Do NOT try www.icarus.org in your browser. It is some nasty- non-work-safe low rate porn. Arghhhh.
Make sure you use the link:
Once I have this installed on my machine, I will run an artical following up on my site.
Orion Robots - Robots from Sol to Sirius.
Its been some time, and I found this old posting of my mine through a google links search.
Icarus verilog is now probably included with your linux dist somewhere- most definately with gentoo. It is pretty useful - and I have been learning a great deal about using verilog and VHDL languages to program robots - or more specifically create purpose built logic platforms as opposed to using microcontrollers.
Now what is needed for linux is a good integrated EDA suite - so I would advise Electronic Engineers to watch gEDA and contribute if possible(k-logic I think is dead).
